Delegate Series: Personal Stories

Blog-Guest-Series-TEDxToronto-2016Special contribution by Andrew Talpash


I have been attending TEDx Toronto for three years now, and I look forward to attending each year. The talks are thought-provoking, and allow me to take time to pause and reflect on where I am going and what I am focusing on. My favourite part of each talk is the personal element, as I am intrigued by people’s unique stories and life experiences – and the way you can find ways to relate to each of these fascinating individuals.

There is such a wide range of topics covered throughout the conference day, which allows me to get a pulse on what is at the forefront of the minds of Canadians – while becoming further informed on emerging trends in science and technology.

The opening performance is always impressive, usually drawing from some of the best talent in Canada's performing arts community.

TEDxToronto is always a day that leaves me inspired.
